Re: Strange experience on CPDL

Should the default be changed to send e-mail notification by default and people can turn it off if they prefer? The creators of phpBB think that the board should not send email unless the specific user provided consent by enabling the corresponding function. This is intended to ensure that email no...

Re: CPDL data dump

The problem with the API is always to parse the wikipage afterwards This is true when metadata are embedded in the text of the page, so the only way to extract them is to parse the contents. However, in all wikis based on the MediaWiki software metadata are largely represented by categories, so, gi...

Re: Newest changes only appear when logged in

Choralwiki is based on the Mediawiki software, which is the same used by other websites like Wikipedia, or, in the music field, IMSLP. The Mediawiki software includes a relatively aggressive caching mechanism. To save server resources, only logged-in users receive the latest version of a page. Anony...

Re: Is it possible to accidentally overwrite files of others?

It seems that in 2009 we (CPDL admins) decided to activate a function that restricts the re-uploading of files to the same user who uploaded the file originally (and to admins, of course). Than the function was de-activated (and it is still de-activated) for some reasons that I haven't been able to ...

Re: Is it possible to accidentally overwrite files of others?

Are the spaces possibly automatically replaced by underscores? Yes. The MediaWiki software automatically replaces spaces with underscores in filenames, page titles, etc. Is it possible to overwrite or overlay a file of another user? Yes. However, when a file with the same names exists, the upload f...

Re: Strange experience on CPDL

I had a strange experience on CPDL today Thank you for notifying us about this issue. There was a mistake in the categorization of this composer: it was associated to the category "French composers" (correct, with lowercase "c") as well as to the non-existing category "Fren...

Re: https://cpdl.org

the next reasonable target is Easter time Unfortunately there was no time enough to implement and test the upgrade to MediaWiki version 1.30. However, it was possible to apply the modifications required for running https on the multi-server architecture. SLL certificates are now installed on all se...

Re: Possible Duplicate Logins

A dormant login is no problem, especially if you never created or edited pages, and you didn't upload any files. If you created or edited pages with the old login, or you uploaded files, it might be convenient to merge the old login with the new one so that such pages are associated to the current l...

Re: Copyright

We cannot provide legal advice, so this is for information only. What does "publish in situ" mean for you? Publish on the CPDL website, or publish through other means in Europe, where you are probably located? Publishing in Europe wouldn't be a problem if the edition published in 1977 only...

Re: PHP notice in api.php

This seems more tricky. As a workaround I disabled warnings on this script. Could you please try again?

Re: https://cpdl.org

As I mentioned back in 2016, setting up HTTPS is a matter of half an hour. No, it's much more than that: traffic is distributed to multiple servers that use different technologies, and users should be transparently handled by all servers. Installing a certificate on a server is easy, however config...

Re: PDF previews on composition page

I can make a bot that will crawl CPDL, generate and upload preview images and insert such templates. What do you think? ChoralWiki makes use of the MediaWiki software, which can automatically create preview images. However, ChoralWiki also includes a fairly large number of scores hosted on external...
